How to Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets White
My husband knows I’ve been dying to get my hands on our 1980’s kitchen cabinets since we moved in. Sometimes, buying new cabinets isn’t in the budget and I’m all for budget-friendly DIY’s! That’s why painting my kitchen cabinets with Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint was the perfect choice.
One thing I love about Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint is that there is no need to sand or prime before painting. I wanted to get more of a clean, bright, and farmhouse look in my kitchen, so I chose Dixie Belle’s Cotton paint color. I knew it would be the perfect shade of white.
The first thing I did was take my cabinet doors and hardware off. Yes, it’s a pain, but the painting will be so much easier and cleaner. Once all the doors and hardware were off I used the Dixie Belle White Lighting Cleaner to clean all of the cabinets and doors.
I knew with our darker cabinets I would have to do more than one coat of paint. One of the great things about Dixie Belle’s paint is that it’s very thick and covers the cabinets well.
The last step is to cover everything with Dixie Belle’s Gator Hide. This will protect the cabinets from stains, water damage, and fingerprints. I applied the Gator Hide using their blue sponge. Once it dried, I applied two more coats. I wanted to make sure these were sealed perfectly.
